What’s Different: Addiction Treatment For Professionals
by Jordan BurninghamMay 3, 2019 Continuing Care, Continuum of Care, Evidence-Based, Residential Treatment, Therapies, Values0 comments
When professionals skilled and licensed in public safety-sensitive professions grapple with alcohol or drug addiction, the implications for the individual, their families, and the public can be devastating. This is particularly true for first responders, executives, attorneys, airline pilots, and healthcare professionals such as physicians, dentists, pharmacists, nurses, counselors, and other types of professionals. A few bad decisions or circumstances can result in the loss of professional reputations, family relationships, and the ability to practice or work in their area of expertise.
Professionals typically have spouses and children expecting them to be full participants in family life and to support the family financially. When professionals become impaired because of addiction, the individual and their loved ones bear the pain.
Additionally, professionals often work in careers requiring a great deal of public trust. Addicted professionals destroy that trust. They can put members of the public, their patients, clients, even bystanders at risk.
What can we do to help?
Because of their professional training and education, this group often develops coping mechanisms that require specific intervention and treatment methods. Our program is staffed by a multidisciplinary addiction team that addresses the related challenges faced by this particular group. Our experience and expertise can help addicted professionals get on a path that helps restore their careers and their lives.
Diamond Tree Recovery first conducts a detailed evaluation to determine the nature and circumstance of the individual addiction, then determines the extent of treatment and recovery needs. The clinical team then evaluates the patient’s psychological and emotional, as well as physical health.
There is a comprehensive review of psychosocial and occupational history, family and relationship issues, psychological testing, neurocognitive assessment, and a complete medical exam.
We work closely with professional boards, employee assistance programs, and other referring organizations to assure treatment accountability and complete compliance with required licensing standards.
The stakes are high for professionals, so it’s critically important that those impaired choose a treatment environment offering a specialized program for addicted professionals. Diamond Tree Recovery provides addiction treatment for impaired professionals that uniquely addresses their individual addiction.

Accelerated Healing in Addiction Recovery
by Jordan BurninghamFebruary 20, 2019 Continuing Care, Evidence-Based, Life Skills, Nutrition, Therapies0 comments
There is evidence that drug addiction shares features with other chronic illnesses, such as 1)heredity – it may run in families, 2)it is potentially influenced by environmental conditions and behavior; and, 3)patients typically respond to appropriate treatment, which often includes long-term lifestyle modification. Addiction, like heart disease, cancers, and type II diabetes, is a real and complex disease.
A frequent and recurring topic of discussion among those responsible for treating chronic addiction is the need for new, effective treatments. Like so many treatment options, when just the symptoms are addressed, as opposed to the underlying causes, results will be limited or lasting only in the short term.
So, while genetic research offers significant promise for our future health prospects, there are other innovative, clinically proven approaches to care that can be effective right now.
Maximizing the patient’s ability to recover more quickly and more permanently, will be well accepted in the continually changing substance abuse landscape. Substance abusers have long been looking for “better care” not just “more care.”

Bring On Accelerated Healing
Because chronic addiction can be so difficult to overcome and the causes so complicated, there really is no singular solution for recovery. But an ingestible, plant-based treatment that can help expedite recovery, regardless of a patient’s underlying disorders, may provide a pathway to that end and is undoubtedly one treatment modality for clinicians in either inpatient or outpatient arena to consider.
It is true that people do choose behaviors that have undesirable results. An essential component of any credible addiction recovery treatment program will include elements of personal responsibility and behavioral change. But add to that program Accelerated Healing as a treatment modality and watch real change begin. Specifically designed to be applied after initial treatment to improve the effectiveness of the initial treatment and to help suppress the possibility of relapse, Accelerated Healing treatment provides vital nutrients that are critical to cell repair and function throughout the body and the brain. It may also increase the effectiveness of other modalities in patients previously unresponsive to addiction treatment.
Many recovery patients are likely (and unknowingly) living with nutritional deficiencies that frustrate treatment protocols from ensuring successful healing. Nearly two-thirds of patients being treated for substance abuse may not reach complete closure, even with long-term care. It should come as no surprise to anyone that cellular regeneration can be achieved by ensuring patients receive nutrients that are critical and essential to cellular functionality and restoration.
If you want to see improvements in your long-term outcome, try this new treatment modality at Diamond Tree Recovery. You will receive organic plant-based nutrient-dense meals, clean water, specialized supplementation protocols and oxygenation of the tissues through fitness. These are some of the crucial keys to Accelerated Healing on your path to recovery.
